I’m glad they caught them and no other violence was committed by these inmates. At least, none that we presently know of.
One of the inmates was accused of having committed torture/mutilation/murder. They were likely dangerous individuals.
With inmates back in CA jail, focus turns to how they escaped
It was the first breakout from the facility in nearly 30 years.
SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — With all three violent inmates who escaped from a California jail back in custody, authorities are beginning to examine how they carried out the jailbreak and what they did during their week on the run.
Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens vowed over the weekend to fix the security lapses that allowed the escape.
Early on Jan. 22, the men sawed, crawled and climbed their way out of the maximum-security Central Men’s Jail and used a rope made of bedsheets to rappel four stories to the ground.
Their escape triggered an intense manhunt.
On Friday, of the inmates, 43-year-old Bac Duong, surrendered after walking into an auto repair shop in Santa Ana just a few miles from the jail. The last two escapees, Hossein Nayeri, 37, and Jonathan Tieu, 20, were arrested Saturday after a civilian flagged down officers near San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park and pointed out a parked van that looked like one believed stolen by the inmates after the escape.
